Arabic Christian Translates Allahu Akbar

This is good to know. How often we hear/read “Allahu Akbar” in association with terrorists shouting “God is Great” before committing some major human rights violation. But I learned many, many years ago to say the meal blessing, “God is great and God is good, and we thank Him for our food.” It’s good to have this Christian translation of the Arabic phrases that we automatically associate with terrorist. It is not the words that are bad; the evilĀ is using God’s name to justify killing self and others.

Well, from a Secular Humanist perspective that’s the way it looks. Christians, Jews, and countless others throughout human history, have killed in the name of their Divine Authority or god.
